The Death of Santini: The Story of a Father and His Son

by Pat Conroy
Published: 10/29/2013 by Nan A. Talese
ISBN: 9780385530903

“Pat Conroy’s amazing voice is back and makes me realize how much I have missed hearing it. The Death of Santini takes a hard look at what has been the most obvious influence on Conroy’s work–his family. Happily, this is not anything close to a pity party, but rather a lesson about how redemptive the powers of love and humor can be.”
